How To Perform Aksharabhyasam At Home And Basar temple

Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious function of Hindus. 'Akshara' means letters (alphabets) in Sanskrit and 'abhyasam' means practice. It is also known as 'Vidyaarambham' which literally means starting of education. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India.

In the olden days, aksharabhyasam was performed when the child was 5 years old. But presently because of early education at Kindergarten level, parents perform this ceremony when the child is in his 3rd year i.e. after the child completes 2 years. Normally there is a belief that aksharabhyasam should not be performed after the child completes 3 years and is in its 4th year.

The function can be performed either in a temple or at home.
